Board of Governors

Board of Governors meeting

York’s bold vision and commitment to academic excellence, accessibility and community connections is championed at the highest levels by a talented and dedicated volunteer Board of Governors.

Comprised of two members of the York University Senate, two students, two non-academic staff members and 24 community and business leaders, including two alumni appointees, the Board oversees the government, conduct, management and control of the University and its property. At five meetings a year and through service on one or more of seven committees, our governors bring to bear their diverse skills, experiences, perspectives and commitment to community service to help realize York’s potential as a progressive, engaged and connected university.

We applaud their contributions and thank them for their service.


Regular meetings of the Board of Governors are held five times per year.
